Lyric Hall Presents Calle Allende by Anatar Marmol-Gagné Saturday, September 16 at 8 p.m. [Frida Kahlo Puppet by Anatar Marmol-Gagne] Lyric Hall will present Calle Allende created and directed by Anatar Marmol-Gagné, featuring Katayoun Amir-Aslani, Darren Lee Brown and Noel William, on Saturday, September 16 at 8 p.m. Lyric Hall is located at 827 Whalley Ave, New Haven, CT.
Puppet theatre production Calle Allende brings to life Frida Kahlo’s struggle to reconcile her broken self and dying inspiration. Kahlo’s pain has clouded her, but in a moment of clarity inspired by an entry in her diary, she realizes that without her imagination, she will lose her lifeline.
“I am not sick. I am broken. But I am happy to be alive as long as I can paint.” Frida Kahlo.
